The recent controversy generated by Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson over the latest film in the Planet of the Apes series has earned the wrath of Whoopi Goldberg. In the movie War for the Planet of the Apes, the character known as “Bad Ape” wears a distinctive blue vest. McKesson believes the movie was racist and the ape wearing the blue vest was supposed to mimic his image while at Black Lives Matter rallies.
In a segment of daytime talk show “The View,” Goldberg let her feelings be known and pulled no punches by telling McKesson “get over yourself.”
